Discussion on: What’s the best JavaScript framework?

It depends

For a simple portfolio => VanillaJS
For a cool project to show=> React
For a complex app => Vue
For an enterprise-level app => Angular

That's all IMO 👻

For enterprise apps, angular is a devil considering they made so many incompatible version upgrades and it is such an opinionated framework. Something stable like jquery and/or backbone is more suitable for enterprise apps.

I think the enterprise appeal with Ng is its opinionated project structure. There's not much wiggle-room, so onboarding a new Ng dev to a 3-year-old Ng project is almost nil. ... compared to something else, this hire may take weeks to hit velocity.

And by "enterprise", we mean somewhere large enough that employee churn is part of the game, and devs are disposable.

What? Angular for Enterprise-level app? Angular's inconsistency can't make it. LOL.
